Kincaid Park

The park was covered with snow. We saw people doing cross-country ski. There’s a big building next to the parking lot that had bathrooms and rooms for parties.

The big building above the slope. So many parties were hosted there on that day. The economy must have been picking up.

Standing in front of the building, we could see a slope covered with snow, farther away, we saw Mt. McKinley, North America’s tallest peak at 20,320 feet, Mt. Susitna (Sleeping Lady), and Cook Inlet.

It's hard to see in this picture, but the white mountain on the right was Mt. McKinley

After we enjoyed the view, as we were contemplating what to do next, we saw people were piling up at the slope with sleds. My kids wanted to play as well, but we didn’t have a sled and the park didn’t have any sled rental service. The locals offered to share their sleds with us. They played for hours and had plenty of fun.
